Youth Excel





Youth Excel

The project brings together different types of local stakeholders working to strengthen youth livelihoods in Koya and Qalat Dizah, in the KRI, to collaboratively address the common problems youth face through their ongoing initiatives and existing assets. The participants work together to share and discuss ongoing issues, transform knowledge into action through research projects, and better address issues facing youth, through an iterative process.

The project aims to:

(1)    Improve civil society capacity, in particular local formal and informal youth-led and youth-serving organizations, in improving youth livelihoods

(2)    To promote more effective livelihoods programming and policies based on youth livelihoods research and consultations

(3)    To increase livelihoods inclusion in Iraq based on the following factors: rural exclusion, gender exclusion, and political exclusion
